Professional profile

As a neurosurgeon and spinal surgeon I deal with adult and paediatric patients with brain and spine problems. These include brain tumours, haemorrhage, hydrocephalus, Chiari malformations and facial pain (trigeminal neuralgia).

A special interest of mine is the spine, having received further specialised training in both simple and complex spinal procedures as well as minimally invasive spine surgery. My aim is to treat these conditions non-operatively as far as possible, but when necessary to provide the latest and most advanced surgical expertise. To this effect I have supplemented my training with post-specialisation fellowships in both neurosurgical and orthopaedic centres, both in the UK and abroad, thus obtaining a unique perspective on treatment options and techniques.

Another particular interest of my routine practice is Trigeminal Neuralgia (facial pain), and I have set up and have been running a Trigeminal Neuralgia Clinic as part of my NHS practice. Both non-surgical or minimally invasive procedures can provide excellent pain relief, and this is tailored to the individual patient.

Furthermore, I also deal with patients with carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar nerve compression, and other peripheral nerve disorders.
